Collecting...





I keep things...silly things that to alot of other people would be rubbish, tossed away, forgotten about. I look for the things that were once loved and forgotten about..and I rescue them..small things, like sweet little vintage christmas decorations, that end up in a box of tat in a charity shop, but with some luck, I come along and with my rumaging head and give them a new home.

I have kept the little bottle of champagne that Mr M bought me when I got my in house artist job....all of the letters that I have ever received and stashed them away in old suitcases, ready for a rainy day when I want to read some some again, old moth eaten toys...

And I keep adding to my collection of stuff...what do you collect?

Glad I'm not the only one who squirrels things away! I've got a box of old bits & bobs from when I was a teenager ... photos, letters, newspaper clippings, bus & cinema tickets from 1st dates etc! champagne corks from special times ... all with the dates on. Once in a while I get this box out and spend an afternoon reminiscing - I love it!

I also can't resist pretty tea cups, and knitted/preloved toys for my son's collection!

Lovely to see your collection, Sam - especially the teddies!

I collect 'mess' no matter how much I try and tidy it never seems to go away!

I've always kept special things which is why I still have so many of my childhood toys, books & ornaments. I have boxes and tind and suitcases full of little things that I have found over the years, cards & letters too.

Glad I'm not the only one!

Special things for me too. I even have champagne corks from my 18th, 21st, and my wedding day.
